It is with huge regret that we have taken the decision to cancel our summer concerts and take an extended break from singing, with immediate effect, until September. All choir members with email should have received a letter this afternoon. Best wishes to you all, and carry on washing your hands whilst singing at the top of your voice!
Provisional restart for rehearsal Monday 20th Sept 2021 with a concert on Saturday 11th Dec in TVCH, Christow.
Our commitee, along with Tim, have been working on this plan. Please look-out for an email from Jan with music ideas and, importantly, we need an idea of how many members wish to return to singing, so when the email comes through, a response would be lovely!

SOME IDEAS FOR SINGING AT HOME
this from Leonie at Barkham:
Dunsford Singers 'A Teign Valley Choir' are a community choir with members drawn from The Teign Valley area near Exeter in sunny Devon
Here at the Dunsford Singers, we are driven by a single goal: to sing beautiful, challenging choral music in a spirit of friendship. Our musical director is Tim Pithers, a very accomplished conductor and an inspiration. The score may be Vivaldi's Gloria or Fleet Foxes' White Winter Hymnal. Whatever it may be we'll give it our best!
